I’m not entirely sure how much needs to be said about this; I mean, it’s an R2D2 Aquarium. A 1 3/4 gallon fishtank sits inside the stomach of one of the most recognizable droids in science fiction, complete with color-changing LED tank lights and waterproof double-sided tank picture with scenes from the Star Wars movies. But oh no, it doesn’t end there…
A noise-recognition system responds by turning the droid’s dome and he whistles at you. Peer into the radar eye, and you’ll find it’s actually a periscope for getting a fish-level view of what’s going on inside the tank. Thankfully the R2D2 Aquarium doesn’t actually move; a drum full of water and fish tumbling down the stairs probably isn’t the best thing to happen to your carpets.
Available now from – you guessed it – Hammacher Schlemmer, the R2D2 Aquarium is priced at $129.95. He’ll ship on December 5th, just in time for Christmas.
